* A ''Webcomic/{{Housepets}}'' storyline had almost all the main characters in the same place, but for a long stretch was only focusing on a couple of them. When Great Kitsune suddenly appears on panel to make a comment, Tarot says "Unless you're gonna help, go back behind the black."

* In modern 3D games, a common trick used to save processing power is to prevent the game from rendering anything the player cannot directly see.

* The ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' series fiendishly uses this concept to make HundredPercentCompletion [[NintendoHard damn near impossible]], especially given how many collectible items are in the [[UpdatedRerelease GBA remakes]]. Fortunately, {{Rare}} was merciful enough to give occasional hints of secrets: [[FollowTheMoney that banana is visible through those tree leaves / half-off-screen / in that "bottomless" pit for a reason]], and [[CameraScrew the field of view might gradually pan down / up / ahead, in preparation for a leap of faith]].

** PlayedForLaughs in "Dunces and Dragons"; when [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick get sent back in time, the medieval Princess Pearl advises her father, King Krabs, against executing them for sorcery due to them being foretold as heroes by a prophecy. Krabs doesn't know what prophecy she's referring to until she points out the series of enormous stained glass windows right above his throne, which had previously been hidden by the camera angle.

* One of the main criticisms with the Maltak arc of ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' was that despite Maltak being a largely featureless plain, people repeatedly miss obvious things like other people walking up on them, or the context of a loud argument despite being right there, or armies attacking them until they appeared in-panel. Most {{egregious}}, however, is when the mountain the orcs were next to ditched them and no one noticed.

** In the episode ''Prey'' Andrea is running from a road into some woods to avoid being seen by a car. We see her run up a hill and hide behind the tree with the camera always focused in the direction of the road. We cut to a close-up of Andrea as she rests against a tree with her back to the road; and bam! Suddenly a zombie appears behind the tree and grabbing her through a fork in the trunk. To compound the issue a further three zombies pop up in-front of her, wandering into frame, while she's being grabbed. The viewer should have seen the first zombie, ruining the JumpScare and Andrea should have seen the zombies directly in-front of her before deciding it was a good time to take a breather.

** One episode after the aforementioned, another minor character ([[spoiler:Patricia]]) is ambushed by a walker that appears to come at her from an angle just ahead and to her right, which she should have been able to see coming seconds before it ran into her and bit her.

* Happens from time to time in wrestling, since the announcers use their monitors when calling the action, so that they'll talk about what the viewers are seeing. This can result in somewhat absurd cases of someone getting into the ring without the announcers even noticing that they're there until the camera angle changes, despite the fact that they're sitting at ringside.

* A great deal of isometric games, shot from a slightly slanted angle, will hide hidden characters or chests behind walls, staircases, or the like, waiting for an investigative player to find them.

* In pretty much every ''Comicbook/Asterix'' album featuring Queen Cleopatra, there will be a scene where Cleo shows up in a huge sphinx-shaped throne pulled by dozens of slaves ... and no-one notices her approach until she appears on panel.
